A its cold in this building a said school superintendent Louis Manning contacted by phone Friday. He added however that he has had splendid cooperation from staff and students. Students have even come up with Energy saving ideas. It is difficult to Cut use by 25 percent. Manning explained since it is compared to this same time last year when schools were experiencing another Energy crisis and were conserving Power resources. Fortunately the crisis occurs when regular sports seasons Are winding to a halt. Manning expects to meet sports league Coal hard facts the end of the Coal miners strike is the Only Way out of the current electric Power shortage said John borrows director of the dept of utilities of the Public utilities commission of Ohio pm co. The shortage is very real and no alternative kind of Power can bail us out explained borrows in a phone interview Friday a things were looking brighter at cd amp a monday feb. 13, thanks to 15,000 tons of Coal the company was Able to buy and bring in by Barge Over the weekend. Cd amp a expects to be Able to continue buying Coal a spokesman said. This Purchase has enabled the company to postpone Mandy tory 25 percent cutbacks to major users which had been expected this week. Cutbacks Are voluntary at this Point but nonetheless critically needed a cd amp a spokesman said he could not speculate about when or if the company would require major users to Cut Back 50 percent. A 50 percent cutback of major Ohio electric users was viewed As inevitable by borrows last Friday but the situation changes daily and May be affected by president Carters declaration of an Energy emergency in Ohio and the establishing of a state Federal task Force for Energy allocation. Still the spectre of 50 percent cutbacks remains throughout Ohio and the concomitant fear of Job layoffs and Ariev stated Economy. Akron and Marietta Are in worse shape than Cincinnati and Columbus although we Are close behind. What makes the 50 percent cutback even More difficult.

They May be asked to Cut Back 50 percent of an already pared Down usage. The Small amount of Independent Coal and Power from Oil based generators available is being fought Over by Ohio and other nearby states equally hard hit by the shortage West va., Western Pennsylvania Kentucky Indiana. Borrows said he Hopes that most companies can maintain some level of services even at 50 percent electric Power. He said he Hopes people realize that one reason the drastic cutback is necessary is in order to preserve Power for such necessaries As fire stations water pumping stations hospitals and Homes. The Puco is asking local homeowners to Cut Back their electric usage but borrows said monitoring and enforcement of this by Utility officials is practically impossible. The Puco has no authority to enter into the Coal miners and companies wage negotiations. All we can do is keep the Federal government advised As to the seriousness of the situation in Ohio borrows said. A we wish someone would do something soon a he added. Cd amp a usually stockpiles 60 Days of Coal. This Supply was damaged by the freezing weather during january. The Coal exposed to the elements has been damaged but the Coal underneath is undamaged a cd amp a spokesman said. Damaged Coal does hot bum effectively.

Classes will continue in the West Wing. The East Wing which houses the Kitchen Pool Industrial shop Art Home economics photography band and chorus rooms is the highest Energy consumer of the two wings in the school.
